Last week Emma's class had a Wii party for earning marbles for good behavior. The students were able to bring their Nintendo DS systems, so the students could keep busy while waiting for a turn to play the Wii. Emma was introduced to PictoChatting. The girls have communicated while playing the same game before, but never PictoChatting. Chris walked by Madi's room and noticed that they were sitting right next to each other, PictoChatting. How cute is that? This will be a good thing for them to know for situations where they can't be talking, like tomorrow night's church meeting. Let's just hope I don't catch them chatting at night after they go to bed (smile). For those that want to learn more about PictoChatting, here is what Wikipedia had to say about it:
"PictoChat is a communication utility included with the Nintendo DS. Up to sixteen people can paint chat with each other using it, connected wirelessly through a system-to-system wireless connection. It allows for simple input of keyboard text and written text/drawings. On October 22, 2007, PictoChat was announced as a stage for Super Smash Bros. Brawl on Wii."
